Background: Scotland beat New Zealand 5 - 2 in World Cup soccer on June 15. The win put the Scots on top of Group Six -- but they still have to play the soccer giants Brazil and the Soviet Union before they can qualify. Scotland began applying the pressure early in the game. Playing in the blue shirts, they scored soon in the 18th minute with a fine shot by Kenny Dalglish. Minutes later John Wark scored the first of his two goals for the Scots. After 32 minutes, they were 3 - 0, with a second goal by Wark. That was the position at half time. Then a miracle nearly happened, thanks to a fierce counter attack by New Zealand that had the Scotsmen worried. Goals by Steve Sumner and Steve Wooddin came from a combination of Kiwi aggression and Scottish blunders and drastically reduced the lead. Then John Robertson and Steve Archibald scored to produce a final result of 5-2. New Zealand was never expected to qualify, but its two goals have reduced Scotland's chances against Brazil and the Soviet Union.
